TeliaSonera International to deploy 100G+ network to handle future IP traffic growth

Telecom
Lead Europe:
TeliaSonera International Carrier has
selected Nokia Siemens Networks for deploying 100G+ pan European network to
handle future IP traffic growth.


TeliaSonera
International Carrier customers will benefit as the 100G+ network offers
significant increase in network capacity.


The
carrier has deployed a new overlay network across Europe to address the
tremendous growth in data traffic.


Mobile
broadband solutions major Nokia Siemens has built this new network to deliver
speeds of 100G and beyond. The existing optical network for the operator was
also provided by the vendor.


We
share a long-standing relationship with Nokia Siemens Networks and are very
satisfied with its installed base in 10G and 40G wavelengths across the
European segment of our global network. Its leading technology for high
capacity networks is exactly what we required for this major transition in our
network,” said Mattias Fridstrom, vice president, head of technology,
TeliaSonera International Carrier.


The
new overlay network with the latest technology from Nokia Siemens Networks is
integrated with Juniper routers to offer a seamless service portfolio to
TeliaSonera’s subscribers. It will initially have 40 and 100GE (gigabit
Ethernet) capacity with the potential to be upgraded to 400G and beyond.


TeliaSonera
International Carrier is a market leader with its networks across North
America, Europe and Russia. Maintaining that position requires greater network
capacity to ensure the best end-user experience,” said Mikko Lavanti, head of
optical networks customer sales and support at Nokia Siemens Networks.


Nokia
Siemens has deployed a new 100G DWDM network based on its
hiT7300 platform that is operating with coherent CP-QPSK technology. This
solution enables lower latency and allows a rapid, cost effective transition to
100G line speeds. The CP-QPSK modulation format is used for TeliaSonera’s
existing network to improve performance.


The
agreement also enables Nokia Siemens Networks to provide a set of care services
including software maintenance, help desk as well as spare part management
services.
